I've been reading A LOT. but still couldn't figure out if it is possible to control a dc motor position using an arduino only, i have a 12V geared dc motor and a 10K slide potentiometer..
what i want to accomplish is that whenever i'll turn the slide all the way up the shaft of the motor will go 180 degrees.
i've heard of someone that made his servo motor a dc one, but i tink he also used another chip to make it work..
i would want to minimize cost and space since this is all i need to be done so i was thinking of this "ardweeny" from solarobotics, which is a very small yet working arduino, do you think it's enough for me?
in the future i would also like to replace the pot with a joystick but fot the same purpose..
is it possible?
Thanks a lot! :)
